Here were such tour operators as Wilderness Adventures, Kakadu 4WD Safaris, Adventure Tours and Connections, at the Jim Jim Camping ground before entering the rugged 4WD track to the Jim Jim Gorge walk - a experience to be remembered in Kakadu National Park Scheduled Tours - are tours that leave on a daily, or nomiinated days of the week or weekly scheduled departure. All tours require a minimum number of passengers to commence and in peak season this never seems to be a concern. They are all guided with a tour driver who is also the guide and cook. Group particpation is part of the fun and getting to know the other travellers in your tour.

Northern territory has a high calibre of guides who have excellent local knowledge of cultural significance, history, flora and fauna.

Toilet stops are always on the agenda of course. Some camps have share showers and toilets.
Scheduled Backpacker Tours in Kakadu National Park Scheduled Backpacker Tours - One tends to see this word 'Backpacker' used very sparingly lately in the tour industry. To me a backpacker tour is nowdays a budget minded camping or accommodated tour a fun component included in the itinerary. These tours historically have targeted the ages of 18-35's though nodays it's creeping up to early 40's and as long as your fit and agile with a happy outlook your welcomed with most 'Backpacker Tours'.

Darwin with an population of 120,000 is approximately 4050km from Sydney, 3500km from Brisbane, 3200km from Adelaide, 4500km from Perth and 1482km from Alice Springs. Due to such long driving distances, it is sometimes not practical for international visitors to drive to Darwin from other state capital cities with time permitting. The drive between Darwin and Alice Springs does however contain a number of interesting and unique sights for visitors to enjoy.

Here were 2 Apollo Hitop selfdrive rental campers at Ubirr Rock in Kakadu,  you can hire a camper from http://www.australia4wheeldriverentals.com As a result, many international visitors hire or rent recreational '4WD' 4 Wheel Drives, Campers, RV's, Motor Homes and Camper Vans to explore the Northern Territory of the Top End and Central Australia.
A Britz 4WD selfdrive hire stopped at jim Jim Gorge carpark in Kakadu National Park and the folks made the walk of 900m to the plunge pool and beach pools at the end of the walk.

What to do, what see, what to experience in Kakadu National Park

Essential experiences to consider are taking a cruise on the tranquil waters of the yellow Water Billabong to view the overwhelming prolific birdlife. Then witness a spectacular sunset over the Arnhemland Escarpment 'say' from Ubirr. A must is to view the Aboriginal rock art at Nourlangie Rock. The see kakadu from the air with a scenic flight, especially in the 'Green Season' and the tremendous volumes of water coming off the waterfalls on the Arnhemland Escarpement. Take one or more of the treks and hikes tracks throughout kakadu national park (make sure you tick off all the requirements first). Above all educate yourself properly on the culture of the parks people, flora and fauna by visiting both the Bowali Centre in Jabiru and the Warradjen Cultural Centre in Cooinda.
